Besides the audio stream through the HDMI connection, it only outputs a digital stream (SPDIF) through a co-ax connection, so no 2 wire analog audio.
thanks, I think i'm going to have to go that route I don't see much I can do to the genesis.

What model Genesis?
I have the Genesis 2.0, the DVD should be better but I can't see what it could be.

Might just be the cable. They can take a lot of stress bouncing down the road so I when I was rewiring mine for my iPod audio in cable, I also upgraded the cable between the TV and the Genesis to a thicker one.

I'll agree the Genesis isn't a high end player, but it should at least provide a decent enough 480 picture.

I tried a different cable. Still poor picture. It's a faded looking picture.

I would say buy the Genesis 3.0 but it is extremely overpriced and very far behind in technology even at half it's cost.

Your very correct there, only option for that unit is RCA connecters. Pretty much the lowest quality picture available. No component and no HDMI. Only option is to switch player or except what you have.

Thanks, I'm not going to put any moe money into the thing. It plays my satellite radio OK. I don't think the 3.0 would fit in the enclosure, anyway.

You could try doing what I did by changing my telephone jack wall plate with one that has HDMI and USB so I could hook up my laptop, which has Blu-Ray. From the jack I connected it directly to my TV and pipe the sound back to the Genesis via the coaxial connection.

I don't know if that is any help to you?

I just bought a basic Sony Blu-Ray player to connect directly to the television. Not very expensive. It really only gets used when its pouring rain outside anyway. I am thinking about eventually adding a sound bar though because the factory supplied speakers aren't great.
